Re: Viewers Give Opinions on Recital of Mexican Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish Class

The key was "OPTION" to recite the pledge to US flag. They were REQUIRED to recite the Mexican pledge. Hey, if this is a Spanish class, why wasn't the national anthem of SPAIN played and sung? Why a tip-of-the-hat to Mexico?? Granted, they're our neighbor and we play the Canadian anthem at hockey games featuring their teams; we don't REQUIRE anyone to sing it. (Disclaimer: I did learn the French national anthem for French class in HS, as an elective. "La Marseillaise" has a catchy tune!]
